    Michael,

    Thank you all. I had thought it was some sort of Cymbidium, but the first one I have seen here. Don't remember where I got it even. Rather interesting looking flowers.

    What do you use as a fungicide in Thailand? Your weather is a little bit different than here; here the cooler season is dry and the hottest time of the year Dec-March is when it rains the most. The temperature actually varies little year round; the biggest change is the humidity.

    Many of the orchids grown here were imported from Thailand before, although now it is restricted. I think the orchids that actually grow the best here are in the Vanda alliance.

    I would be interested in hearing about your orchid cultivation.

    Cheers back.

    Wrong color flower for Cym findlaysonianum. If it were Cym find' it would be a lot more brown in the flower and the red striping wouldn't be as pronounced. The plant growth habit is not quite right either.

    Actually I am pretty sure now it is Cymbidium aloifolium after research.
    Thanks Roy

    Think I found the second one: Aeride quinquevulnera. Thanks so much. Know nothing about aeride orchids, but think I may have some here. When people sell plants here there is never a label; I never know what I am buying except vanda alliance , etc...So you telling me it was an Aerides, I am looking closer at my other plants. Especially if they are fragrant. Aerides are often fragrant??

    Yes there are two kinds of Cymbidiums - the larger and more showy cool-growing types which could flower if you live in the high forest areas if you are in Asia and the smaller flowered, warmer-growing types. The cooler types are much larger in flower and plant size and the colors are really much more vivid and varied.

    I love Cymbidiums but unfortunately I can't grow them since I'm located in warm, lowland Quezon City.

    Default cymbidium

    Thank you. I would guess my weather here is similar to yours; I am right on the ocean on the drier side of the island. This is how the cymbidium turned out..the flower stems are about 18" long.

    I would also tend to think cym. aloifolium. Whatever it is, it's beautiful and obviously happy. Good growing.
